They're small, they're powerful, and they're finally here. Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for the iPhone are packed with features, proving just how extensive pocket-size productivity can be.

Not to mention that Direct Connect actually, like, worked back when we were all using the same version of AIM. It's a bummer that it's so hard to share images in-line in chat now. » 5/16/11 12:32pm 5/16/11 12:32pm
